Percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy (PELD) is a modern endoscopic technology that enables removal of herniated discs of the lumbar spine, effective treatment of compressive radicular pain syndrome, minimization of a surgical trauma, and the shortest period of patient hospitalization, temporary disability, and rehabilitation. The article analyzes the outcomes of surgical treatment of 20 patients with acute compressive radicular pain syndrome using the PELD technology, demonstrates the obvious advantages of this type of operative intervention, and presents a typical clinical example of treatment outcomes.
